Ever been to a baseball stadium?
Ever gone to the beach?
Ever enjoyed a picnic?
Ever had fun at a festival?
Ever gone out in public?
Well, J Henry Scott has done all of those things. And J Henry Scott knows what’s up.
J, being the observational boss that he is, noticed a fundamental issue in our society today and set out on a mission to fix that issue: wine isn’t offered everywhere. So, what did J do? J excused wine from the dinner table. Enter Zipz Wine.
CEO of Zipz Wine, J Henry Scott wanted to create a product that could suit the lives of the active, modern day individual. He knew that more and more people were starting to prefer wine as their adult beverage of choice, and he knew that these same people would appreciate premium quality; so J decided to make premium wine portable, and he decided his product would be different than the rest…and better. The world just deserved a little more luxury.
J had the vision, now it was time to have some fun. Not only would he present premium wines in highly quality durable plastic with the look and feel of a glass, he would also incorporate a rescrewable top that doubled as a coaster, perfect for any occasion or setting. The use of 100% recyclable, BPA-free materials wasn’t an option, it was a responsibility.
J demanded that the people deserved more flexibility to enjoy the finer things in life. They deserved the opportunity to stop wasting so much wine and money. They deserved Zipz. So J built the Zipz team, and the Zipz team rocketed his vision to astronomical heights, designing and creating a patented single-serve wine that ensures the wine stays fresh and protected until the perfect moment of consumption. It was time for Zipz to bring the people together and showcase a new world of possible settings and experiences to be enjoyed amongst friends and good company.
In just 10 months, Zipz went from a baller idea to an even more baller reality, with the first Zipz products delivered nationally in time for opening day of the baseball season. And now, Zipz is available anywhere you are. Unzip the experience.
